Thanksgiving, it’s important, both as a holiday and as an attitude. So tomorrow I’m eating Thanksgiving dinner, the traditional turkey with all the fixings, with friends who are family. But right now, this is about some of the things I’m grateful for….Tears of Life
A life so normal
it could hardly be mine
school, work, friends
guilt trips to call home more often
No one’s dying and
everyone’s crying
the normal tears of life
_____paying rent
_____buying food
_____do they like me?
_____you’ll never believe what they did
_____the deadline is coming
_____the meeting is tomorrow
_____I’m moving
_____you’re leaving
How beautiful life is
when the challenges are
The normal tears of life
